    Wink possessive case

    Hello,

    I need your help please!!


    Can we say:

    -I didn't receive the last lesson's summary?

    -Can we do the last lesson's debriefing?

    (Is "the" necessary?)

    Thanks

    I wouldn't use either. I suggest: -I didn't receive the summary of the last lesson.

    Yes, it's much more natural than your original sentence.
